The Montreal Canadiens and Philadelphia Flyers meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Wells Fargo Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Montreal Canadiens are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 17.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Cole Caufield leads Montreal with 26 goals, Nick Suzuki has 38 assists and Josh Anderson has 164 shots on goal. Defensively, the Montreal Canadiens are allowing 3.7 goals per game and are killing 73.1 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Jake Allen has given up 145 goals on 1,335 shots faced, and Sam Montembeault has allowed 108 goals on 1,138 shots.

The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 15.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Travis Konecny leads Philadelphia with 27 goals, Kevin Hayes has 34 assists and Owen Tippett has 195 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 74 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Carter Hart has allowed 145 goals on 1,586 shots faced, and Felix Sandstrom has given up 46 goals on 396 shots.

The Canadiens are 24-57 in their last 81 road games and 52-108 in their last 160 overall. The Flyers are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 45-95 in their last 140 overall. The over is 8-3 in Canadiens last 11 overall. The over is 5-1 in Flyers last 6 overall. The Canadiens are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Philadelphia and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The road team is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings. The underdog is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

Neither team has anything to play for at this stage, but the Philadelphia Flyers at home gives them the edge. The Montreal Canadiens have been fade material on the road dating back to last season, and it's hard to back them in pots like this. It's Flyers or pass for me.
